These Star Wars Jedi Survivor green laser barriers are impossible to get past at first, blocking off many routes and secret areas. However, you can get through them once you're handed a particular item as part of the story, but that's quite far in, so for the earlier stages of Star Wars Jedi Survivor, these laser doors are off limits. Since the upgrade is story mission-gated, that also means there are no shortcuts beyond drilling through the main missions. To help you understand when you gain the ability to get through these green laser barriers in Star Wars Jedi Survivor, and how to do so, I've explained it all below.

Surprisingly, the upgrade that lets you get past green laser barriers in Star Wars Jedi Survivor is a magic charm. There's no tech here, just a witchy token from Merrin that is never explained and lets you dash through laser gates for... reasons.

You'll get the charm during the Jedha objective to "locate Brother Armias" which follows on from both the missions involved in the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Shattered Moon or Kobo choice. With those two objectives done you'll end up on a mission with Merrin on Jedha, during which she'll give Cal 'Merrin's magicked charm' at a crucial point. 

This charm will let you dash through the Jedi Survivor green laser walls which you will have just recently learned, so approach one of these barriers and press B/Circle to pass through to the other side - you can do this both on the ground and in the air! The dash is another one of the core Star Wars Jedi Survivor abilities, Force powers and gear options you'll unlock.

Importantly, dashing through these laser gates will reset your double jump and in-air dash, letting you string together long acrobatic sequences of moves in certain Star Wars Jedi Survivor situations. 

Even more importantly, once you have the charm all those laser gates you've seen in Star War Jedi Survivor will be yours to conquer. With this new ability you'll be able to explore a ton of new areas and find all sorts of new things.
